ExxonMobil Chemical Co. has introduced a new sealant resin it says can replace standard terpolymer polypropylenes in cast PP film and biaxially oriented PP film.
Vistamax 3588FL provides low seal initiation temperature and a broad hot-tack window for faster packaging line speeds and improved efficiency. Extended hermetic seal area improves food preservation properties in cast PP film, according to the Houston, Texas, company.
Coefficient of friction can be controlled using commercially available masterbatches to eliminate problems in vertical form fill and seal packaging, even with sensitive films like metallized cast PP film, according to ExxonMobil.
